Light\ Monte Cristo Sandwich 

“Can’t think.  Brain numb.  Inspiration won’t come.  Bad ink.  Worse pen.  Best wishes.  Amen.” 

 That’s exactly what I thought when I sat down to write this entry.  Absolutely nothing came after that, except, “what a lame way to sign a year book.” Then it was all crickets. 

 So here’s a super yummy alternative to a super high fat restaurant sandwich.  Sometimes you just gotta suck it up and go with the cholesterol fest of the real deal, because you won’t fool anyone into thinking this version is the original.  But for the other 364 days out of the year this is a darn good sub.  I can’t recall where I got this, but it was probably Cooking Light.  If you think this is your original creation, let me know and I’ll be happy to credit you.

Light Monte Cristos

4 pieces of Nature’s Own Whitewheat Bread
4 oz. of sliced turkey
4 oz. of sliced ham
2 slices of Kraft 2% American Deli Delux cheese
2 slices of light Jarlesberg
1/2 c. Egg Beaters
1 teaspoon (or less) powdered sugar
raspberry jelly

Spray a medium sized skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat.  Build your sandwiches, alternating the meat and cheese.  Lightly dip sandwiches in Egg Beaters and wipe off any excess.  There should be no drips.  Add sandwich to pan and cook until browned.  Repeat with second sandwich.

Slice in half and lightly sprinkle with powdered sugar.  Serve with as much raspberry jelly as desired.
